Sestry Cheeke: Essex, hraběnka z Manchesteru a Anne, Lady Rich, dcery sira Thomase Cheekeho

The Cheeke Sisters painted by Sir Anthony Van Dyck. This beautiful and touching portrait of two sisters — an elegy on marriage and love — belongs to a small and distinguished group of double portraits painted by Van Dyck in England during the last years of his life. Save for those at Chatsworth, Blenheim Palace and Sudeley Castle (whose trust status all but precludes the possibility of their sale), it is the only female double portrait by Van Dyck to remain in private hands.

Oh Dear crazyorse that must have been painfull for these "Rich" ladies and also quite sad.

Libi

I had no idea about that. :-)

@CJ45 @Libi I don't think it is uncommon to see high foreheads in a 17th century portrait. Women used to actually pluck their hairline, as a high forehead was considered a sign of beauty.

CJ45

crazyorse, yes I remember the MP but he losed his seat anthorer plunker.

Pleased you like the link Libi but no baldness in the family. LOL!!!

Libi

Thank you for the link, Clive. Those informations are very interesting!

Libi

Thank you for answer, crazyorse. I should have looked it up in wikipedia. It didn't occur to me. :-)

@Libi Sorry it was supposed to be a joke.
The Cheeky Girls were a pop duo who had some success in the UK in 2002-2004.
There was some controversy, when an MP intervened on their behalf when they were possibly getting deported. One of them got engaged to him but it didn't last more than a few months.
Cheeke sisters + Cheeky Girls

Libi

I'm sorry, but I don't understand your question, crazyorse.

CJ45
